If you think those pills

create more problems than they're worth, that

those tablets and capsules don't treat your

underlying condition,

don't address your needs

that they aren't a solution

you're right.

They don't.

 

If you wonder why you're much

sicker than you were before

and ask yourself how you got here

to this land of doctors appointments

with a pill case jingling with promises of a solution

that brought you to this place

and the men and women who agreed

they were ever a treatment,

you were right

about them.

And they weren't right about you.

 

That voice deep down

that told you the truth

and when you breathed it

aloud in that soft out spoken way

or the voice of vengeance you earned a right to speak in

and they condemned you and then

threw you away far beyond the margins

of the economy and you hung on to the edge

of a society

you weren't easily enough controlled by.

 

You were right

you are now, too.

All is not lost.

This is an anthem.

 

Start to reclaim yourself,

slowly this time, even though

you want to throw it down the drain,

flush it down the nearest toilet

far away from you

to remove the bottles of opportunity you might

use to get the hell out of here.

Try and avoid

years of protracted withdrawal

that might embed itself upon the trauma

you've already endured. Step away from your

medication regime long enough to listen

to the sound of your heart singing

songs of justice

and believe what it tells you is true.

 

Those medications are no treatment

and those people you trusted with the most intimate details

of your life are not trustworthy.

They don't have your best interests

at heart, but you do.

I believe you.

I know you are true.

 

You were right about those pills,

that were no solution.

You are enough.

 

Find your family

of choice, your community.

Learn that blood is not thicker than water.

Love is thicker than blood

and you will find your way home.
